“I’ve Never Seen A Physical Specimen Like Carl”July 13th, 2012
Sporting a faux hawk and seeming a bit nervous, Josh Freeman sat down for a one-on-one with lovely Lindsay Soto of the Man Channel, NFL Network, last night.
Freeman raved about the addition of Vincent Jackson and said his presence is far superior to the impact Michael Clayton had on the Bucs’ young receivers during the 2010 offseason and preseason.
Among other takes, Freeman said he forced things too much last season and said he didn’t play “within the system” and within himself consistently.
Freeman said applying what he’s learned from 2010 success and 2011 failure will be the biggest difference for him this season. No. 5 also said he’s “working out from a footwork fundamental standpoint” this offseason and can feel the improvement.
On the human armoire, new Bucs guard Carl Nicks, “I’ve never seen a physical specimen like Carl,” Freeman said.
Soto opened the door for Freeman to take a shot at the lack of discipline under Raheem Morris, but Freeman wouldn’t throw his old coach under the bus and said different coaching styles are out there but all that matters is wins.
It was a wise take from Freeman. Raheem was heralded as a new-wave genius in 2010, before being reduced to buffoon status in 2011. A similar record-based fate no doubt awaits Greg Schiano.
